How'd you play?

This weeks league score was a POS due to the Standard Amount of Crappy putting. Ball striking was really good, but the stupid putter was the same as before... no different. I hit 8 greens out of 9, and still shot 4 over, with one Bird. That means 4 3 putts, and one miss from 4 feet.

 

Stupid game.

 

 

 

I still haven't thrown my putter this year........ yet.

Shot 75 yesterday with only 26 putts. Pins were set for a tournament and pretty tight, so I hit a lot of short side fringes. My GIR took a hit (I only missed 2 greens, but it still went down as a 9/18 GIR round), but my PPR went way down, due to putting from the fringe a lot. All in all, it was a good day.

Nice round..

Thanks. It sounds like we're in the same boat; I've been striking the ball very well, my putting has been horrendous. While I only had 26 putts yesterday, I lipped out 5 very makable birdies. I just switched to the split-handed putting grip and it must have worked, because before my putts weren't even hitting the lips.

I am considering a long putter.

Played in a 4 ball handicap match for our Cup Team yesterday. Those guys ran into a buzzsaw! I shot a 36 on the front and my partner shot 37! Closed them out on 13, after which I proceeded to bogey my way in for a 79, ruining what should have been my best round of the season!

 

Team won 6-4, which makes us 2-1 overall with 3 more to play!

 

I love playing well when it matters!

Shot a season low nine hole round of 42 at Pinecrest CC today. My putting fundamentals had gotten sloppy and I switched back to a reverse overlap putting grip which has made all the difference in the world.

 

I'm also digging the new irons. I have to focus a little more - especially when hitting the long irons. But, that isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Congrats on the 42! I'm hoping to get out this weekend...

 

Thanks Matt. Yeah, me too. I'm thinking about trying to make it out Sunday if the weather is OK.

My ride back to playing respectable golf continues. I only got 6 holes in today (marking the third consecutive time my dad and I have been rained out), but I made 3 pars and 3 easy bogeys and I hit a lot of good shots. The putter change has got me back in an aggressive mindset - I dropped a 25+ footer and hit everything else to 6 inches. Also chipped one in, which is good fun.

Hot, Hot day Sunday, heat index was 104, humidity was 95%. We teed off at 7:45, and the back 9 was so dern hot. I kept hydrated with Natural Light all day. My driver was all over the place, a lot of hook which I have never done before, but I played well around and on the greens to post a respectable (for me) 91 on rock hard dried out greens at Stumpy Lake.

That is great..

 

So today I played 18 with the boss and a former colleague at a local 9 hole par 35. I put the Seemore into play along with the new irons, and new driver. I managed to shoot a respectable 75 with 2 birdies and ZERO 3 putts!!!! I hope things continue along the same path.

Great shootin' Nic!

 

I ran into a sandbagger today, he's a 20 Index, I'm a currently a 9. I was giving 6 strokes based on Course Handicap * 80%. I shot a 40 on the front, which is decent for me, and this guy throws up a 38 and I swear he missed two 3 footers on purpose. I was down three after 9, and conceeded the match to him to save his life and perhaps mine, I was afraid I was going to have a stroke I was so pissed off.

I shot a 43 today with 3 fairways, 3 GIRs, and 16 putts. Putted very well - knocked down all my putts inside 10 feet and some of them were pretty nasty. Ball striking was pretty mediocre and the driver wasn't wild, but it wasn't quite on point either. I do give myself a bonus pat on the back for playing golf psychologist to the guy I was playing with - he was having a miserable time, but I'd like to think that I had a hand in his finishing with a par on a tough par 5.

No 3 putts?????

 

The following exchange comes to mind...

 

Dr. Peter Venkman: This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.

Mayor: What do you mean, "biblical"?

Dr Ray Stantz: What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath of God type stuff.

Dr. Peter Venkman: Exactly.

Dr Ray Stantz: Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling!

Dr. Egon Spengler: Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes...

Winston Zeddemore: The dead rising from the grave!

Dr. Peter Venkman: Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!
